to romney the reason he lost is because obama gave, quote, gifted to various democratic voting blocs. according to "the l.a. times" on a call with donors, romney had this to say -- with the president -- what the president's campaign did was focus certain members of his base coalition, gave them extraordinary financial gifts from the government and worked aggressively to turn them out to vote. romney specifically referenced the african-american community, hispanics and young voters as beneficiaries of obama's large essaying the obama campaign was generous in what they gabe to the groups. according to abc news, romney had this to say about obama's gifts to latino community. what the president did is he gave them two things. one he gave them a big gift on immigration with the dream act and the amnesty program. romney's targeting of the gift takers, african-americans, latinos, young voter is noteworthy giving the gop's problem with african-americans, latinos and young voters. romney said this, quote, with regards to african-american voters, obama care was a huge plus. and was highly moti
>> this week on the journal, editorial report, president obama's fuzzy math. he says closing the loophole isn't enough and that the tax rates must go up for top earners. does he really want to avoid the coming tax cliff? plus, the petraeus scandal further muddies the benghazi probe. was the account of this in any way related to his affair. and the u.s. on track to be be the largest oil producer, but will the obama administration let it happen or turn an oil boom into a bust? welcome to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot. headed into friday, fiscal cliff talks with congressional leaders, president obama gave us a hit list of his negotiations strategies, repeating his intention to immediately raise tax rates on top earners. >> when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars and it's very difficult to see how you make up that trillion dollars if we're serious about deficit reduction, just by closing loopholes and deductions. the math tends not to work. >> paul:
. >> four years, candidate obama promised to do so very much, but he has fallen so very short. i mean, he -- he promised he'd be a post partisan president, but he's been most partisan, dividing, attacking, blaming, he was going to focus on creating jobs, and instead he focused on creating obamacare that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, but then he doubled it, how is it he's fallen so short of what he's promised, i think in part because he's never led, never worked across the aisle and how the jobs are created in the economy and today he's making new promises, promises he will not be able to keep because he admits he is planning on staying on the same path, the same course that will not lead to a better destination. the same path we're on means 20 trillion dollars in debt the end of a second term that he won't have. it means tripling unemployment. it means stagnant take home pay, depressed home values, a devastated military and by the way unless we change course we may be looking at another recession. so the question of this election comes down to this,
lewinsky, katrina, they have happened during second terms. how does president obama avoid the kind of second-term disaster that has crippled so many presidencies? and, canned nuts the crazy conspiracy theories that the right wing spun this election season. here's one from rush limbaugh. democrats manipulated the weather forecast in tampa so the republicans would cancel the first day of their convention. really, rush? that's not even the nuttiest one. let me finish with a letter from the war front that a young pt vote commander once wrote years before he became president. this is "hardball," the place for politics. wasn't my daughters black bean soup spectacular?

>>> romney says obama bought the election. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with chump change. throw them something and the votes will come pouring back. here he is yesterday, romney, sha noosichmoozing with his don about how the whole thing went wrong. i bought the minority was health care and bought the students. wow, great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours, fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still have to play interest on their college loan. nobody is getting anything for free. and the sick thing is your need, mitt, they claim they did. to say t
income americans, largely, re-elected president obama. now, the left is going to scream when you say that because they don't want to acknowledge the economics of the vote. liberals want to see themselves as noble. they don't want to consider the fact that entitlements buy votes. >> hear that? over at fox romney's right arm. and there's a lot of other republicans who are also drawing the wrong lessons from romney's defeat. they say he lost because he was not conservative enough. not conservative enough? really? well, have no fear, republicans, there's plenty of far right to go around. former gop presidential candidate ron paul has decided that, quote, secession is a deeply american principle. nothing treasonous or unpatriotic about it. folks, this party might talk a big game about moving to the center, but they're still headed right off the cliff. joining me now is krystal ball, jonathan capehart, writer for "the washington post" and an msnbc contributor. thanks for coming on the show. >> thanks for having us. >> gop consultant mike murphy tweeted something interesting today. he said,
the shot at the white house in 2016. i don't think the nice words he had for obama will hurt him much with republicans four years from now. i mean, do you want to be the republican candidate who gets up on stage with christie and tell him he shouldn't have praised the president's response to a natural disaster destroying his state? i don't think i would. that does it for "the cycle." karen, take it away. >> good afternoon. i'm karen finney in for martin bashir on this wednesday, november 21st. democrats are crying out, don't let boehner and the boys ruin thanksgiving again. >> right now what i want to make sure of is that taxes on middle class families don't go up. >> why not ask millionaires and billionaires to pay more? >> republicans essentially say, hey, why don't we just cap deductions? what's better? >> you make it clear if someone breaks the pledge you'll do whatever can you to get rid of them. >> to educate the voters that they raise taxes. again, we educate people -- >> to get rid of them. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. >> even so
. >> kimberly: we'll see you tomorrow. >> bret: president obama says you can pay me now and pay me later. to get off the fiscal cliff. this is "special report." ♪ ♪ >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. is it a negotiating ploy or really what president obama beliefs can happen? the president may be going down a new path tonight in deficit reduction efforts. it's a path that is sure to lead to many obstacles from the other side. chief white house correspondent ed henry has the new developments in a time sensitive story. >> in a dramatic move today, president obama seemed to be trying to split the budget talks to two pieces. suggesting he and lawmakers come up with spending cuts next year after they avoid the fiscal cliff, by extending middle class tax cuts and raising taxes on the rich. >> it would give us more time than next year to work together. on a comprehensive plan to bring down the deficit, streamline our tax system. do in a balanced way. >> the president apparent shift away from spending and tax altogether now in a big deal could increase the chances of a market rattling fall off th
president obama was so bad. there was no philosophy to it. mitt romney's campaign was kind of the end of the line of the conservative era that began coherently with ronald reagan in 1980. mitt romney was the ultimate remainderman. that's why they have an easier time of dumping on him right now. >> so the clown car has backed up to run over mitt romney. that's your image for tonight, howard. >> yes, it is. >> that woman who didn't like her husband, she drove over the guy in the parking lot a few years back then drove back over him again. i don't want to get involved in that legal case, but i do remember the pictures. let's go to john here. is this the clown cars as howard beautifully put it backing up over the guy that outdorked them and won the election even though he's no more or less dorky than they were? your thoughts. >> some of these people are not certifiable clowns who are saying these things about romney. i don't disagree with howard's characterization in general, i do think it's fair to say that part of romney's problem was that he was really always an incredibly bad fit with
.o.p. lawmakers to accepting the tax hikes now. >> i miss visiting towns like this. >> president obama got his wish, rather than negotiating with republicans he was hamering them. back on the campaign trail in a factory that makes angry bird toys. >> it's not accept to believe me and i don't think it's acceptable for you for republicans in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage because they don't want the tax rates on the upper income folks to go up. >> within minutes, john boehner fired back the talks are on life support. >> let's not kid ourselves. >> boehner ripped the president for sending treasury secretary ti tim geithner to capitol hill with a proposal that led mitch mcconnell literally burst out laughing. >> the white house took three weeks to respond with any kind of proposal. and much to my disappointment, it wasn't a serious one. >> their beef is the president campaigned on $800 billion in tax increases by ending the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. but is now proposing double that. $1.6 trillion. by adding tax hikes on dividends and capital gains. plus, the white house wants
's not their fault, it's somebody else's fault. >> obama, romney argued, had been very generous with black, hispanics and young votevoters. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout, especially in the urban areas. >> paul ryan lost his hometown. >> he lost his hometown -- >> which is not a particularly urban place. >> they voted against him twice. >> losing never feels good. >> president obama will hold his first press conference -- >> to discuss the looming fiscal cliff. >> will the fiscal cliff be the number one conversation piece? >> there's only so much we can say about this fiscal cliff/slope. >> i argued for a balanced approach. the majority of the voters agreed with me. >> i think they're popular ideas. >> i think the majority of voters agreed with me. >> clearly president obama won. >> losing never feels good. >> no more mr. nice guy. >> the president responds to questions about susan rice -- >> about the benghazi attacks. >> senator mccain and senator graham want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> former cia director david petraeus will testify before the senate intellig
to be putting obama care on the table. there's no question in my mind. >> how does that make sense, michelle? >> well, it makes sense because eric cantor's team lost the election and their hopes of repealing obama care is pretty much shot. so their last chance at undermining a bill that they all hate and campaigned on repealing is to try and make it look like the only thing reasonable for the defendant to do is to throw it in the mix. of course, that's not true. they are just grasping at last straws here. >> can i make a moment on that? >> yes. go ahead. >> if i were president obama and i were sitting in that room and negotiating with these members and someone brought up -- if eric cantor brought up putting affordable care act on the table, i would be well within my rights to stand up and walk out of that room. that is absolutely ridiculous. i totally agree everything should be on the table when it comes to fiscal policy but this election was an entorsment of the affordable care act. these guys, i think, are really nuts to try to raise that as an issue in this context. >> well, the other par
11th attack on the u.s. mission in libya, his testimony now raises more questions about the obama administration's account in the days after the assault. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge reports from capitol hill. good evening. >> thank you, the former cia director is used to coming in the front door and today shunned reporters and entered the loading dock and briefed the house and senate intelligence committee. the former cia director was pushed to explain why today he said he believed it was terrorism from the start when on september 14th, according to a senior republican in the house, the directors emphasis was on the anti-islam film. >> his testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, a terrorist involved from the start. i told him my questions i had direct questions. >> one democrat said the disagreements come down to a basic issue. >> the more significant issue was the element of planning and who was responsible and that wasn't clear. to what degree this was planned. >> a congressional source familiar with this w
to fight. president obama took a strong stand today at his news conference on taxes, on deficits, on immigration. we'll talk about all that later in the show. but we begin with the big story of president obama's smackdown of republicans who have been playing politics with the tragic killings at our consulate in libya. senators like john mccain and others on the right wing have been trying to have a scandal with the tax against the president's ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. today, the president called and he said, i have had enough. >> let me say specifically about susan rice she's done exemplary work. she represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i have said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. am
of state hillary clinton is on the ground in the middle east. yesterday, president obama released clinton from their joint asia trip and sent her to jerusalem for an urgent meeting with ben ja man netanyahu. this morning clinton flew from jerusalem to the west bank to meet with mahmoud abbas, president of the palestinian authority, before returning to jerusalem with additional talks with netanyahu. secretary clinton is in cairo where she met with president mohamed morsi of egypt who's mediating the discussions. as secretary clinton carries the official white house message there is new attention being paid to the president's strategic options in the region. "the washington post" writes president obama's decision to send his top diplomat on an emergency middle east peace making mission tuesday marked an administration shift to a more active vist role in the region's affairs and offered clues to how he may use the political elbow room afforded by a second term. beyond a cease-fire agreement, the president could try to throw his political clout behind a larger, long-term solution here. so far
. the democrats are saying, president obama and harry reid are saying tax the rich, raise tax rates. this is all about tax rates. the democrats led by president obama and harry reid, president obama will speak later today. their firm position for many years has been tax the rich. bill: what boehner is arguing you can find other sources of revenue by reforming the tax system. what does boehner get if he cuts a deal. >> if he cuts a deal and agrees to some kind of compromise where we do raise tax rates on the rich. there are two things may get in return. more spending cuts. at least the promise of more spending cuts. maybe that increase in tax rates could be limited to the very, very rich. for example people making more than $1 million a year. limit the impact of raising tax rates and maximize the amount of spending cuts down the road. bill: give me the even game. how do you see this ending, the deal, how does it shape up for you? >> late december, president obama says to republicans you are defending the rich and risking a recession, back off. the republicans listen carefully and say okay, we'll
mitt romney will have a private lunch with president obama tomorrow. it will be their first face-to-face meeting since the election and oh, to be a fly on the wall. makes you wonder if they'll be talking about this, the austerity crisis, better known as the fiscal cliff facing washington and the country. this hour president obama will speak live at the white house flanked by middle-class families whose household budgets depend on congress reaching a deal by january 1st. his latest effort to use his bully pulpit. nearby on capitol hill, both parties are meeting behind closed doors at this very minute. each side hashing out where they are willing to compromise and where they are drawing the line in the sand. >>> the other big story we're watching for you, a second round of sitdowns for united nations ambassador susan rice, who's in an all-out campaign of her own to face her critics. after three republicans issued blistering comments yesterday, this morning rice is meeting with republican senator susan collins of maine and in an hour is expected to meet with senator bob corker of te
since president obama and john boehner met in person. nbc news confirms two leaders spoke by phone for 15 minutes last night a call described by politico as short and curt. boehner gave his state on the current talks a moment ago. >> no substancetive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over past two weeks. all eyes are on the white house. the country doesn't need a v victory lap it needs leader. >> behind the scenes of the contours of a deal are starting to take shape, a trillion plus dollars in tax heights, entitlements of $400 billion and 1.2 trillion in spending cuts to offset the dreaded sequester. if the phoners haven't been gabfests the president is chatting up other folks including small business owners, middle class americans and mitt romney-loving ceos. if awkward meetings are par for the course in washington, the president's one today takes the cake. later this hour, president obama will sit down for a post-election chitchat with the prince of awkward, the king of tilted conversation and uncomfortabled one-liners, mitt romney. is ther
the last several days including the engagement by president obama and secretary clinton with leaders in the region and to support a de-escalation of the violence. >> president obama himself was on the phone in the early hours of the morning trying to prevent the conflict from escalating into a ground war. explosions and smoke clouds dotted the skyline in gaza again as soon as the sun was up. more than 100 people are now confirmed dead there with dozens of children among those killed. more rockets from gaza landing in southern israel today. one sent flying in the direction of jerusalem. israeli police said more than 60 rockets were fired by midday. thousands of israeli reservists remain gathered at the border with gaza. israel threatening to take the next step if if hamas doesn't stop the rocket fire into israel. the next step ground troops moving in. we want to bring in ambassador dennis ross, served as adviser to four presidents and is a mideast diplomacy analyst. it's great to have you with me today. big news coming within the last hour, al jazeera reporting that the ceasefire is g
and dao ut to spike and vote that way. someone keeps telling the press that president obama prefers to nominate u.n. ambassador susan rice and as long as that person is not the president and does so under ground rules that praekt his or her identity, we are condemned to this preventative war we're watching in washington. one side attacking while no one outside the gates of the white house know what is the president intends. i take president obama at his official word. he has not decided whose name to send to the senate and with that we go to the first of our two senatorial guests. senator bob corker, republican of tennessee. senator corker, i have laid it out as best i can. you senators have a right and a duty to decide, to advise and consent or not, to a president's nominee. isn't this strange that we're having the debate about the qualifications for a candidate for the secretary of state position and she hasn't been nominated? >> i think it is, and, you know, as i mentioned yesterday, whoever the president does nominate, i certainly look forward to giving a full hearing. i don't a
>>> good morning from new york. i'm chris hayes. president obama reiterated this morning his mandate to raise taxes on the wealthy as part of a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. and former democratic congressman jay innsly has been elected. i'm joined by goldie tailor. lou mckroi, former advisor of mitt romney's health care group. tana, ozzie coats and lorella. she came to the united states as an undocumented immigrant when she was ten years old. >>> late tuesday night barack obama was re-elected to a second term as president of the united states. his victory was at the same time narrow and decisive. it was not just a victory for the president but a truly historic night for liberalism across the country. colorado legalized marijuana. maine, washington and maryland legalized gay marriage. the 113th congress will include the most female members ever and for the first time in history, women and minorities will hold a majority of the democratic party's house seats. in his victory speech president obama vowed to continue the work he began in his first term. >> america, i b
reportedly held a private meeting with senior obama administration white house officials. according to the "washington post" the groups were told not to worry about any entitlement reforms or big budget cuts. the so-called safety net programs according to them are not going to be touched and the progressive groups walked away feeling very happy. the report say the white house feels it does not need to compromise, period and is willing to let the big tax hike happen on everybody. the big tax hike is what everybody will face not just the rich or the middle class. they think they'll be in a better position to negotiate with the g.o.p. after that happens. chris stirewalt joins me, host of power play on foxnews.com. >> i was a little frightened, i thought something i, really bad was happening instead of the standard badness. megyn: that is terrifying. [laughter] back down to business, the progressive groups, the union groups meet with white house officials and are very happy, which, you know, strikes fear down the spines of republicans out there i suppose. but can it really be that presi
. although president obama says it would be, quote, preferable to avoid a ground war, he is making support of israel clear. >> there's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders so we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. >> joining us now from gaza is nbc's reporter. what's the latest this morning? >> reporter: good morning, mika. they've pushed that up now over the past six days of fighting the death toll stands at 95 palestinians, 23 of them children, more than 640 wounded palestinians since this conflict began last wednesday. one of the incidents you referred to and one that's drawing a lot of national media attention into what exactly happened when this family was killed. it took place sunday morning and it was the house of a top hamas official. in that house were several families. it was a three-story building with 12 people inside of it. all 12 people were killed. ten of those 12 were from a single family including fo
in town. >> the senate has spoken and president obama has spoken. he's promised he will not sign any bill to pay for handouts to the wealthiest 2% of americans. i only hope house republicans have been listening. >> we've been responsible even as we've remained firm on this point, no tax increases now for promised spending cut that is won't materialize later. the american people have seen that game before and they won't be fooled again. >> reporter: over at the white house, the talk of breaking the no tax increase pledge got a positive response. >> some of the comments you mentioned are welcome and they represent what we hope is a difference in tone and approach to these problems. >> bottom line, as we always say, talks continue here in washington. the white house says the president did speak with speaker boehner and senator reid over the weekend to touch base on this very issue. as one republican aide put it to cnn, the fact that they are still talking is progress. but a democratic aide said they don't have staff had you hadling in a room going over spreadsheets which is where they need t
firepower. >> though you're unlikely to hear the current incarnation of president obama articulate this point of view, it's sound analysis. what message is the israeli government and u.s. government that supports it sending when it makes choices that result in hamas being able to point to their victories and leaves president mahmoud abbas totally impotent. here's the lesson, as far as i can tell, if you recognize israel if you're committed to nonviolence you'll get roled, marginalized, undercut and left looking like a loser. if you fire rockets into the heart of israel, kidnap their soldiers, they'll negotiate and adjust their policies. everyone i've talked to on the palestinian side sees this disparity. none other than hamas political leader explicitly cited abbas's sorry situation in an interview on wednesday. >> translator: mahmoud abbas gave this opportunity to israel and the international community. what did they do? they made him fail, they let him down. >> in allowing this to continue, in refusing to pressure the israeli government to take concrete steps towards peace in the
might be stuck. a senior administration official told us that president obama and john boehner had a phone wallace night and politico was reporting that the phone call was curt. they said on the call john boehner told the president to leave the tax cuts for the rich alone. the president says he doesn't want to do that. he's going to stick with his plan to raise $1.6 billion in revenue and if republicans have something better they should be specific now. eric cantor said republicans are already going further than they did in the same spot in 2010. >> we have done our part. we have put revenues on the table, something we didn't do two years ago during the debt ceiling negotiations. >> we've seen some positive developments in the last several weeks, in terms of what republicans have been saying about the need for revenue as part of a balanced package. the president will continue to make the case that that is essential. >> reporter: so both sides saying revenue is on the table, now the fight is obviously to figure out where it's going to come from, how the government is going to make m
the pentagon scandal and why he wants to stop president obama's choice for secretary of state. >>> and target employees are fighting back after being told they will have to open stores on thanksgiving night. >> but we begin this morning with today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >>> no one should leap to any conclusions until we determine what the facts are and we will. >> the pentagon responds to a growing scandal surrounding general allen and former cia director petraeus. >> sources tell cbs news that paula broadwell the alleged mistress of david petraeus warned general john allen that jill kelly was a seductress. >> allen denies any wrongdoing as investigators look through 20 20,000 to 30,000 pages of documents. >> president obama will hold a news conference today since being re-elected and it's expected he'll talk about the so-called fiscal cliff. >> the american people want action. >> the only thing standing between success and failure is presidential leadership. >> three people have died in central italy has people are affected by widespread flooding. >> the man who accused a
on the phone. >>caller: the timing is too perfect, the obama administration, as the administration claimed it was coincidence that the benghazi consulate was attacked on the anniversary of september 11th now it is convince dense the affair surfaces right after the election, not before but right after and before the intelligence chiefs go to capitol hill to get grilled. as an old intelligence analyst, and i could be totally wrong this is my interpretation, the administration was unhappy with general petraeus not playing ball 100 percent on their party line story. he was getting cold feet aboutiving under oath and i suspect these tough chicago guys knew of the affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card. i don't like conspiracy theories and i could be wrong but the timing this, again, right after the election and right before he is supposed to get grilled on capitol hill, it smells. maybe it is coincidence but let me allay your concerns on one count. our nation has -- is not going to be suddenly vulnerable. and the deputy director will fill in, unless
. >> this was reported by nbcweeks ago we had video from the video surveliance cameras. president obama sent ambassador rice saying it is reaction to the movie and we have disturbing attack. show it was awe coordinated preplanned attack with mortars and 50 caliber guns. >> we heard that people if someone was in the situation room, watching this unfold live, my question is how could anyone. i know the fog of war everyone is talking about. how could anyone see what the law makers saw and witness what professionals. and walk out and say this is a protest about i tape. this is the most intriguing thing in what is happening today. ambassador rice, why would see had tell five net work shows that it was a spontanous attack according to the information she had. she got an unclassified briefing before going out there for the white house, and doing something she had no involvement in. >> gretchen: that is hogwash. do you really believe that the white house had an unclassified briefs. >> brian: i don't know what is worse she got an unclassified briefing. >> or they are saying that that is the reason that takes he
power lunch of 2012. president obama and mitt romney meeting for the frts time privately since the campaign after having been together serve times overall, including three debates. ruth marcus, and kristin welker. kristin what are they saying about the private lunch? not much, i guess? >> reporter: not a lot, andrea. they're tamping down expectations. jay carney saying there's no formal agenda to this lunch. of course president obama, during his victory speech in chicago, said he wanted to sit down, talk to mitt romney about his views how to move the country forward. you have to assume that would include a robust discussion of the fiscal cliff, given that is what lawmakers are talking about now. mitt romney just arrived here. we're not expecting anything huge to come out of this meeting. no appointment. for example, to the cabinet. but the president certainly, i think, hoping to engage in a serious conversation. this, as you point out, will be just the seventh time that these two have sat down after what was really a bruising fight during the election. this is really about sort
. we were all paying attention to the election, re-election of barack obama war is breaking out in the middle east? what, what? >> when did that happen?
